## "Syzygies of curves"

The study of the equations defining projective varieties, and the relations (i.e. syzygies) amongst them has an old and venerable history. First considered around 1850 in the work of Sylvester, the computation of syzygies has remains a central topic in algebra to this day. Much later on, it was realised that syzygies arise naturally in ...

## "Vector bundles on algebraic varieties"

The study of vector bundles on algebraic varieties is a classical topic at the intersection of geometry and commutative algebra. In its algebraic form it is the study of finitely generated projective modules over commutative rings. There are many long-standing conjectures and open questions about algebraic vector bundles, such as: is every topological vector bundle ...

## From ferromagnetism to spintronics: attempt at a synthesis

Ferromagnetism is as old as the civilization, but it took the merging of Einstein theory of relativity and Quantum mechanics to provide its explanation. Exactly at a time where ferromagnetism and the spin of the electron were slowly but surely acquiring a smell of antiquity, spintronics was discovered and flourished - and still does - ...
